Addiction Treatment Programs: Need Help Curing My Porn Addiction …?

Question by Randolph M: Need Help Curing My Porn Addiction …?
I’ve noticed recently that I’ve developed an “addiction” to anime porn. It practically consumes my life. I keep downloading Sailor Moon and Dragonball Z pics and vids, and I keep having to create secret folders on my hard drive in order to hide it from my 6 and 10 year old sons. My wife is fed up with it, and keeps giving me ultimatums, basically our relationship or the Japanese Pictures. I sit during work and space out thinking about dirty Japanese pornography aka hentai. Is it wierd that this turns me on at this age, and do you have any suggestions on how to beat this crippling addiction??

Well don’t just go deleting all of it cause you will begin thinking about even more. Just keep it near by. But when every you get the urge to watch it do something else like think about your kids or your wife. Keep you self real busy all the time and you should soon drift away from it.

Hope I helped.

    when you say at this age i’m not sure what that means… you didn’t mention how long you have been getting into what I call “jap-porn-amie” as was easy flowing word just like the very graffic easy flowing imagery… spacing out at work… I can’t say I blame you unless your a surgeon… I wouldn’t worry too much about that… when your at home and find yourself looking at these “wife made tabboo” pics just get up and walk away. get a flash drive that plugs into a usb and upload your “stuff” on it and delete the foleders on you desktop… if your boys find them that will be hard to explain… but like anything that feels like an addiction filling your time with something else would be the first step…I don’t recommend getting a drink when you want to peek at your pics… that too my upset your wife

    So simple, and yet so trying. Have you ever heard the phrase “Just Say NO!” This is not a joke. I’ve been a mental health and addictions professional for 20+ years, now retired, and I’ve read all the WONDERFUL promises that all these expensive treatment plans and hospital programs put forth, but maybe I read more than they wanted me to. I read the fine print!! And in each and every worthy program, somewhere amidst all their wonderful promises of beating an addiction, whether it be in the middle of their promises or at the end of them, or on a separate page of their fancy brochures, they include the words, “Of course, if the patient chooses not to follow our recommendations (aka: “do what we say”, aka: don’t repeat the addictive behaviors), we cannot guarantee success in our program.” So, what they’re saying, bluntly, is, if you don’t stop doing what you’re addicted to, you’ll never get beyond your addiction. Gee, I heard former First Lady Nancy Reagan get laughed and booed off the stage for pithily interpreting all those words into the most efficient treatment plan ever: “Just Say NO!” Now let me tell you that no matter how you deal with your addiction, just like with any addiction, you will NEVER “get over” your addiction. You will have it “under control”, and the minute you go back to your addictive behaviors you will be, as they say in the trade, suffering relapse. So YOU decide when you’ll undertake a very difficult process of breaking an addiction, no matter which the addiction is: “Just Say NO!” over and over and over and over and over again, and then when you still get “haunted” in the future, you’ll be more capable of dealing with it. Oh, and there has been a program called “Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous” established by The Augustine Fellowship. The last address I had for them was P.O. Box 119, New Town Branch, Boston, Massachusetts 02258. That’s where I ordered a book from them for my clinical practice. That was back in 1988 so I can’t guarantee they’re still at that address, but you can try and they may have an address for some porn addiction treatment program. All good programs use the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous as their core program, but they change the words “alcohol” and “drunkenness” to whatever words are appropriate for the specific addiction being addressed. If you seriously want to get rid of your addiction, Just Say NO, repeatedly, forever, and see if you can adapt the 12 Steps of Alcohol Anonymous to your addiction, and live it thoroughly. You will succeed then.

    How to avoid porn addiction on the Internet

    1. Consider installing porn content filtering software( Strongly Recommend NetDog ,you can get it from http://www.netdogsoft.com ) on your computer. it will help to protect you from stumbling into pornography by accident, That’s important.

    2. Do not try to guess what the address of a Web page is. Many pornographic sites have similar addresses of respectable sites. For example www . whitehouse . com is a porn site. The real address is www. whitehouse . gov

    3. Never click on Web site addresses that you receive in an unsolicited email.

    4. Do not open attachments that come in email that are unsolicited.

    5. Use filtered search engines or reputable directories to find the information you need.

    6. Do not search for terms like girls. Think before you enter a search term.

    Stick with reputable sites.
    If something looks questionable, don’t let curiosity get the best of you. Delete it or close the window.
